BioDynamic Cranial Sacral Therapy
What is your background?
I began life as a mover. Many years of energetic wiggling and rolling around as a child eventually led me to modern dance, where I found an outlet for my passion. I went on to earn a BFA in Dance from New York University and then worked as a professional dancer in New York City for 7 years. In that time I was a freelance dancer with many different artists, and also held a full time position with the seminal Trisha Brown Dance Company from 2012-2014.
In 2015 I moved home to Colorado, where I studied Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy with John and Anna Chitty at the Colorado School of Energy Studies. The course widened my understanding of the body and mind’s capabilities, and I relished every piece of information I received. Having just graduated, I’m passionate about combining Craniosacral Therapy with my background in dance to help others gain a sense of health and wellbeing.
While I have completed the class time, I am still working to finish my practice sessions. This means that sessions are currently free of charge, with a suggested donation for the space rental.
Why did you choose your profession?
When working as a professional dancer, I was often faced with physical challenges like injuries, anxiety, and fatigue. I loved the opportunity to travel the world and perform, but the lifestyle was wearing on me. I couldn’t shake the sneaking suspicion that all of my physical injuries had deeper roots in my psyche and so I started to explore alternative therapies for myself. I found Craniosacral Therapy, which offered the balance I had been looking for between healing for the mind and the body. It instantly felt like the way forward and I’m passionate about working with Craniosacral and movement to help others in their journey towards wholeness.
What do you do in your down time?
My downtime often includes getting out of out of town to connect to the natural world, playing with my dog, and practicing my skills of calming the nervous system while hanging off the side of a rock.
What is your favorite baked good?
The classic chocolate chip cookie will always have my heart.
